Liuget won't return this season after tearing a quad tendon Sunday against the Broncos, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Liuget's injury was initially thought to be to his knee but was clarified after the game. He'll figure to move to IR in the near future. Counting Sunday, Liuget had played in six games this season, totaling 14 tackles (nine solo), including 1.5 sacks. Look for Justin Jones to pick up some extra snaps as the Chargers' only backup at defensive tackle now that Liuget is out.
Liuget (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Liuget will not return to Sunday's tilt against the Broncos after having been carted to the locker room in the first half. The severity of the veteran's injury remains undisclosed, but it appears that Liuget may have sustained a significant knee issue. Darius Philon will benefit from an increased defensive workload as long as Liuget remains sidelined.
Liuget is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a knee injury.
Liuget was carted off from the sideline to the locker room, according to Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times. The veteran suffered what appeared to be a significant knee injury during the second quarter of Sunday's matchup against the Broncos. As long as Liuget remains sidelined, expect Darius Philton to receive an uptick in snaps.
Liuget recorded three tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Liuget bounced back to form in what was his second game of the season. His 1.5 sacks equaled his total through 12 games last year. His ability to get after the passer is vital for a Chargers team that is still without Joey Bosa (foot). Liuget will look to carry over his strong play Sunday into Week 7, when the Chargers take on the Titans.
Liuget (suspension) has been reinstated to the league, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Liuget's reinstatement comes at a critical time for the Chargers who have witnessed a dip in production up front with Joey Bosa (foot) sidelined. It may take Liuget a quarter or two get his feet back underneath him, but the big fella is expected to help out Los Angeles right away.
